Abstract

Since thirty years, composite materials are developing day-by-day as human beings are in need. Natural fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites are taking additional advantage in this modern technology as they are ecofriendly and readily available in nature. Natural fibers are advantageous as they are biodegradable in nature. Hybrid composites are combination of different reinforcement materials to the matrix combination, sometimes may be filler or fiber or both. Mechanical properties like tensile strength, impact strength, flexural strength, hardness, etc., are essential parameters to be considered for the selection of a good composite material. Other characters like tribological properties are to be taken into account as important factors in the selection of composite materials. This review paper includes the characterization of mechanical and tribological characteristics of different hybrid composites combinations. The main objective of this review is to select a compatible hybrid composite combination as per required application and requirements; like selection of glass fiber for different applications with compatible fillers, that too based on the mechanical and tribological factors. Different kinds of combinations are discussed based on different research citations and concluded based on which one shows good mechanical and tribological properties and such materials can be used for further research works.
